Viva La Vigan: Hidden Garden
Tricycle ride going to the Vigan's Hidden Garden will cost you P40.00 according to the staff from the Baluarte Zoo which they voluntarily told us. This is to prevent us from drivers asking a more pricey fare. It's a 10minute ride and getting to the place was similar to Sonia's Garden but their own version. Puro plants doon. But I'm not sure why it's called hidden when it's not really hidden. It's just inside one baranggay. Hehe.
It was relaxing na din. The ambiance, the settings, it's nice. And there's no entrance fee in the place. It's free. Dun na rin kami actually nag-lunch ni hubbee and had our first taste of Ilocos' famous Bagnet (deep fried pork belly). Damn! It was a nice and sumptuous lunch. Sinabayan pa nang masarap na watermelon shake for me and mango shake for hubbee. Perfect! Hehe.
The place was nice. The food was nice. The experience was nice. It was our last item in our Vigan itinerary as we no longer have time to visit some more places. But all in all, it was a nice experience. It was a Viva La Vigan adventure. Worth of our time. Thanks Vigan for having the viajeros in your territory!!!
We took another tricycle going back to Partas Bus Terminal to get back to Laoag but this time, the tricycle fare costs P15.00 per person only. Unfortunately, when we got to the terminal, the bus just left. We had to wait for the next trip to Laoag which is for the next 30minutes. Great!
So we just did a little stroll at Vigan's public market which is in front of the terminal. We returned exactly at 1:30pm as advised by the security guard at the terminal. The bus was there on time. Perfect. And the bus left at 2:00pm, and the fare was P121.00 per person going back to Laoag. Goodbye Vigan! See you again Laoag!!!
